2016 Has been a wonderful year for me and my family. In fact, if someone had told me 20 years ago that I would be Mayor of my home town – I would not have believed it.
However, here I am, and here we are, all 200,000 of us; and it has been a true blessing for me to get to serve each and every one of you as your 62nd Mayor. Much has happened this year for the good of our City of Akron; and I have you to thank for your continued support and excitement. In fact, I must share that I have most appreciated the level of community engagement shared during my Town Hall Meetings, Youth Town Hall and visits to area churches and Akron Public High Schools. Thank you.
During 2017, I look forward to continuing what we have started - to make our City a great place to live, receive an education, raise a family, and become involved. Please continue to join me and my administration, along with our 1,800 member workforce as we continue to focus on income, education and health to move our beloved City of Akron onward and upward.
Thank you for the “happy memories” and may you and yours have a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous New Year!
